FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Conclusions, Planning and Memories
by Mr Tony Kent
Today marks the end of the school journey for our Year 12 students, as the 'lucky' few sit the last HSC exam which, by the way, happens to be Drama. On Sunday night we celebrate the journey at our Year 12 Formal. Then, on Monday, almost half of the class board a plane bound for Vanuatu to engage in our annual MAD (Making a Difference) Trip, a service focused experience like no other. Thus ends a journey of 13 years of formal education for our beloved students of the class of 2018.
Although it is an ending of sorts, it is also a beginning as each student pursues a range of options across work, training and tertiary study. Wherever this journey leads, they will carry with them the foundations for life that have been part of their experience here at CCAS. We openly promote an holistic approach to education. It's so much more than just academics, it's a focus on the whole person, aimed to develop good citizens who can make a positive contribution to this world, who are independent and resilient and know they have a God who loves them and has a plan for their lives. We wish you well Year 12, and will watch with great interest your forward journey beyond CCAS.
For the information of parents planning for next year, the 2019 Fee Schedule has now been set. Fees will increase next year, on average by 2%, in line with CPI. We are pleased to be able to continue to hold fees at a stable level (in real dollar terms) for the fourth year running. The actual Fee Schedule will be published on the school website in the next couple of weeks, but we wanted to give you this early notice for planning purposes.
Next week our Year 6 students head off on their annual Canberra Trip– the last of our camp experiences for 2018. I am sure that they will have a wonderful time and bring back lots of great memories of this experience. For the rest of the school it is the halfway point of the term. It's difficult to believe but Christmas is just around the corner.
